كتاب العشق الإلكتروني

by عبدالله علي الأسمري

كم كانت رائعة تلك اللحظة التي قررت فيها قبل عقد من الزمن أن أدلف إلى مقهى للإنترنت في قلب مدينة الرياض لأول مرة في حياتي. رأيت عامل المقهى وقد ارتسمت على وجهه ابتسامة عريضة وهو يقودني إلى مربع صغير يحوي طاولة انتصب عليها جهاز حاسوبي ذي شاشة عريضة. بدا المكان معزولا من ثلاث جهات أما الجهة الرابعة والتي يتم من خلالها الدخول فكانت عبارة عن باب صغير ينغلق بمجرد الدخول. بعد أن استويت على المقعد هرع العامل إلى أيقونة المتصفح browser ليطمس منه سجل المستخدم السابق وذلك - على ما يبدو - لكي لا أ لقي نظرة على ما كان يفعله من جاء قبلي. لم تسعفني خبرتي إذ ذاك في تفسر مغزى ذلك التصرف

10 Don'ts on Your Digital Devices

by Daniel G. Bachrach Eric J. Rzeszut

In nontechnical language and engaging style, 10 Don''ts on Your Digital Devices explains to non-techie users of PCs and handheld devices exactly what to do and what not to do to protect their digital data from security and privacy threats at home, at work, and on the road. These include chronic threats such as malware and phishing attacks and emerging threats that exploit cloudâe based storage and mobile apps. It''s a wonderful thing to be able to use any of your cloud-synced assortment of desktop, portable, mobile, and wearable computing devices to work from home, shop at work, pay in a store, do your banking from a coffee shop, submit your tax returns from the airport, or post your selfies from the Oscars. But with this new world of connectivity and convenience comes a host of new perils for the lazy, the greedy, the unwary, and the ignorant. The 10 Don''ts can''t do much for the lazy and the greedy, but they can save the unwary and the ignorant a world of trouble. 10 Don''ts employs personal anecdotes and major news stories to illustrate what can--and all too often does--happen when users are careless with their devices and data. Each chapter describes a common type of blunder (one of the 10 Don''ts), reveals how it opens a particular port of entry to predatory incursions and privacy invasions, and details all the unpleasant consequences that may come from doing a Don''t. The chapter then shows you how to diagnose and fix the resulting problems, how to undo or mitigate their costs, and how to protect against repetitions with specific software defenses and behavioral changes. Through ten vignettes told in accessible language and illustrated with helpful screenshots, 10 Don''ts teaches non-technical readers ten key lessons for protecting your digital security and privacy with the same care you reflexively give to your physical security and privacy, so that you don''t get phished, give up your password, get lost in the cloud, look for a free lunch, do secure things from insecure places, let the snoops in, be careless when going mobile, use dinosaurs, or forget the physical--in short, so that you don''t trust anyone over. . . anything. Non-techie readers are not unsophisticated readers. They spend much of their waking lives on their devices and are bombarded with and alarmed by news stories of unimaginably huge data breaches, unimaginably sophisticated "advanced persistent threat" activities by criminal organizations and hostile nation-states, and unimaginably intrusive clandestine mass electronic surveillance and data mining sweeps by corporations, data brokers, and the various intelligence and law enforcement arms of our own governments. The authors lift the veil on these shadowy realms, show how the little guy is affected, and what individuals can do to shield themselves from big predators and snoops. What you''ll learn After reading 10 Don''ts, you will understand how to: detect and report phishing scams choose better passwords and how to manage and safeguard all of them use cloudâe based storage services more safely shield your data from the prying eyes of government agencies, data brokers, corporations, and criminals steer through the risks of public wireless network, shared computers, and obsolete devices select and configure apps for your mobile devices without unknowingly compromising your privacy and security lock, safeguard, and erase your physical devices Who this book is for The primary target audience for 10 Don''ts is just about everybody--namely, non-techie individuals who routinely use computers, smartphones, and tablets in their daily lives but who are nagged by persistent worry that they are exposing themselves to personal insecurity, intrusive surveillance, and criminal violation. The secondary readerships for this book include employees of small businesses lacking dedicated IT specialists, whose owners want to give their workers a short and entertaining book to reduce the risk of business loss from unsafe practices; households with multigenerational users, ranging from incautious tee...

11th International Conference on Practical Applications of Computational Biology & Bioinformatics

by Florentino Fdez-Riverola Juan F. De Paz Mohd Saberi Mohamad Miguel Rocha Tiago Pinto

Biological and biomedical research are increasingly driven by experimental techniques that challenge our ability to analyse, process and extract meaningful knowledge from the underlying data. The impressive capabilities of next-generation sequencing technologies, together with novel and constantly evolving, distinct types of omics data technologies, have created an increasingly complex set of challenges for the growing fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The analysis of the datasets produced and their integration call for new algorithms and approaches from fields such as Databases, Statistics, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Optimization, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. Clearly, Biology is more and more a science of information and requires tools from the computational sciences. In the last few years, we have seen the rise of a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists with a strong background in the biological and computational sciences. In this context, the interaction of researchers from different scientific fields is, more than ever, of foremost importance in boosting the research efforts in the field and contributing to the education of a new generation of Bioinformatics scientists. The PACBB'17 conference was intended to contribute to this effort and promote this fruitful interaction, with a technical program that included 39 papers spanning many different sub-fields in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Further, the conference promoted the interaction of scientists from diverse research groups and with a distinct background (computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists).

The 2-tuple Linguistic Model

by Francisco Herrera Luis Martínez Rosa M. Rodriguez

This book examines one of the more common and wide-spread methodologies to deal with uncertainty in real-world decision making problems, the computing with words paradigm, and the fuzzy linguistic approach. The 2-tuple linguistic model is the most popular methodology for computing with words (CWW), because it improves the accuracy of the linguistic computations and keeps the interpretability of the results. The authors provide a thorough review of the specialized literature in CWW and highlight the rapid growth and applicability of the 2-tuple linguistic model. They explore the foundations and methodologies for CWW in complex frameworks and extensions. The book introduces the software FLINTSTONES that provides tools for solving linguistic decision problems based on the 2-tuple linguistic model. Professionals and researchers working in the field of classification or fuzzy sets and systems will find The 2-tuple Linguistic Model: Computing with Words in Decision Making a valuable resource. Undergraduate and postdoctoral students studying computer science and statistics will also find this book a useful study guide.

20 Years of Computational Neuroscience

by James M Bower

When funding agencies and policy organizations consider the role of modeling and simulation in modern biology, the question is often posed, what has been accomplished ? This book will be organized around a symposium on the 20 year history of the CNS meetings, to be held as part of CNS 2010 in San Antonio Texas in July 2010. The book, like the symposium is intended to summarize progress made in Computational Neuroscience over the last 20 years while also considering current challenges in the field. As described in the table of contents, the chapter's authors have been selected to provide wide coverage of the applications of computational techniques to a broad range of questions and model systems in neuroscience. The proposed book will include several features that establish the history of the field. For each article, its author will select an article originally appearing in a CNS conference proceedings from 15 - 20 years ago. These short (less than 6 page) articles will provide illustrations of the state of the field 20 years ago. The new articles will describe what has been learned about the subject in the following 20 years, and pose specific challenges for the next 20 years. The second historical mechanism will be the reproduction of the first 12 years of posters from the CNS meeting. These posters in and of themselves have become famous in the field (they hang in the halls of the NIH in Bethesda Maryland) and were constructed as allegories for the state and development of computational neuroscience. The posters were designed by the book's editor, who will, for the first time, provide a written description of each poster.
